“After leaving the army I worked as a technician for a civilian company. Over time I knew I wanted more from my career and to move into management. My masters allowed me to interact with fellow students and lecturers, giving me an insight into the different ways people approach tasks - something which is invaluable in my current role as project manager.

MODULES & LEARNING

Acquire a strategic organisational perspective and a basis for progression and application of strategic level skills, competencies, and decision-making capability.

Gain an understanding of the key perspectives on human behaviour within an organisation and on the processes of organising and managing workforce activity.

Develop an appreciation of strategic marketing tools, including brand and online strategies, used by managers to assess their company's market and achieve a competitive advantage.

Undertake an in-depth research project in a subject area that is appropriate to your course and your interests.

An alternative to the Dissertation, apply your learning to a real organisational issue of strategic importance across any relevant business and management discipline. You will be encouraged to manage a client-consultant relationship and work independently.

Evaluate the fundamental concepts and theories of corporate finance, identifying how these can be effectively applied in both national and multinational organisations.

Learn to identify, understand, evaluate and compare types of investment for the private investor, including tools, methods and strategies.

Explore the modern accounting and financing principles which support business decision-making and financial resourcing in both the private and public sectors.

As part of our strong focus on action learning, you will make use of a purpose-built business simulation suite, which mimics facilities used to train the emergency services. You will be presented with business critical challenges and situations and will work in teams to devise response strategies, using real-time business information to formulate your approach. Immediate feedback will help evaluate and improve your analytical and decision making skills.

Your teaching will include lectures, seminars and tutorials, with both individual and group work. Your modules will be taught by a mix of expert academic staff, many of whom are fellows of the Higher Education Academy, together with industry professionals.

You can choose to undertake a consultancy project with one of our partner organisations in the public, private and charitable sectors, negotiating the project's finer details directly with the client and presenting your research to your client and academic supervisor.

Guest lectures throughout the year will both inspire you and provide networking opportunities with potential employers. Past speakers include the CEO of the London Stock Exchange and the deputy agent of the Bank of England in Yorkshire and Humber.
